Description
This edition contains six of Euripides' eighteen surviving works, including "Orestes." In writing "Orestes" (408 B.C.E.), Euripides utilized the mythology of the Bronze Age to reflect upon the politics of Athens during the Peloponnesian War. The story takes places after Orestes has murdered his mother to avenge his father, Agamemnon, and follows him as he attempts to save his own life. The play explores themes of man's subordination to the gods and the conflict between natural law and manmade law. In addition to "Orestes" this edition also includes "The Heracleidae," "Andromache," "The Suppliants," "The Phoenician Maidens," and "Iphigenia at Aulis."
